in reply to Easily XML filtering?

Set up twig handlers for them. Consider:

use strict; use warnings; use XML::Twig; my $xml = <<XML; <companies> <Acme>Acme</Acme> <Missing>Missing</Missing> <Wobbler>Wobbler</Wobbler> <Trump>Trump</Trump> <Tibble>Tibble</Tibble> </companies> XML my @companyList = qw(Acme Wobbler Tibble); my %handlers = map {$_ => \&HandleCompany} @companyList; my $twig = XML::Twig->new (twig_handlers => \%handlers); $twig->parse ($xml); sub HandleCompany { print $_->text (), "\n"; }

Prints:

Acme Wobbler Tibble

[erix]: you seem forget there is another idiot coming :)
[Your Mother]: The US government does not attract talent, but grafters and liars and it has been that way for the better part of a century. FEW exceptions.
[erix]: you think it only /looks/ worse this time?
[Your Mother]: HR Clinton was literally threatening Russia. She would have been MUCH more likely to start real trouble.
[Your Mother]: I think there is less decorum this time.
[Your Mother]: We’ve had rapists and thieves and unqualified government. They just had decorum.
[erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
